all last the Birthday present is bought - a new release and a chance to win 'Mollys Cupcake' from Whimsy and Stars Studios + Sketch Saturday

Good morning everyone, thanks everyone for some of your excellent ideas, I will show you how hard my Dad is to buy for, he hates gadgets, doesn't like anything technical and really isn't into 'man' things...so I just took him to a local clothes shop and told him to pick some clothes for his holiday and with a little help from my Sister and my Niece (here from Belfast for the day) and me it was sorted, he got two new shirts and underwear so phew done at last, next years hes getting a voucher and socks lol...right my card for today is using a brand new release over at Whimsy and Stars Studio, isn't she a real cutie, shes called Molly's Cupcake and is available today for the first time, I coloured her with distress inks and glittered the cupcake...I love these they always turn out beautifully and go so well with gorgeous bright colours like in these Basicgrey Marjolaine Tiramasu papers, lush aren't they...I added a sentiment with a cupcake at its centre, some ribbons from my stash and a selection of buttons...the fab sketch is from Sketch Saturday...if you have time why not hop on over to Whimsy and Stars Studio blog and see what the rest of the DT have made with her and if you leave a comment you could win her too...they are so talented you wont be disappointed...have a wonderful day everyone whatever your up to...hope your not pressie shopping lol
